Soul music was originally a fusion between black American Gospel music
and Rhythm and Blues, the early exponents being black American singers
such as Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Gladys
Knight, etc. This website charts the birth of Soul music in the early
1960's right through to the end of the Soul music era in the late
1980's when the genre "Soul" was replaced by the genre "R&B"
for popular, predominantly black American music. The term "rhythm &
blues" (r&b or rnb) had previously been used in the 1960's and prior to
that to describe popular, predominantly black American music.
There are many different types and styles of Soul music including Southern
Soul, Deep Soul, Motown, Northern Soul, Sweet Soul, Disco Soul, Funk, House, Jazz-Funk Fusion, Modern Soul, Old School, Slow Jams, etc, etc.
